Trust-based Security: A Proactive Approach that Puts You in Control

In 2012 we’ve seen an unprecedented rise in targeted cyber attacks and an acceleration of the loss of core IP.  While state sponsored attacks and cyber espionage have been occurring for decades, the level of disclosure and visibility of these attacks is rising to new levels. We are witnessing the greatest theft of intellectual property in history. Industry analysts state traditional Anti-virus security does not work and is “fighting a losing battle”. A trust-based approach is the most effective way to stop advanced threats and malware

In this session, attendees will receive an in-depth review of the importance of a trust-based security solution.

Bring Your Own Service - The Effects of Cloud Services on Compliance and Data Protection

Recent research has revealed that organizations struggle to offer collaboration technologies that compete with free, cloud-based, consumer services in terms of functionality. However, these free services offer few of the security measures that have become standard in the corporate data center, and offer little or no guarantee for organizations that data stored in these services will be protected in accordance with organizational standards.

As a result, 80% of organizations do not currently allow their users to use cloud file sync services, and only 31% plan to do so in the future. As only 59% of organizations report to actively block these services from their networks, and as many workers now have access to their own mobile internet services and devices, it is a logical conclusion that considerable amounts of organizational data are now being created and transmitted entirely outside of the organizational perimeter, and outside of its control.
This presentation will review the findings of our research, discuss techniques for how organizations may assess whether they are protecting themselves from cloud data exodus or running the risk of losing control over their information assets.

The Dynamic World of Threat Detection, Containment & Response

Regardless of size, network security is a top priority for all organizations. Networks are more vulnerable than ever due to the inherent risk of facilitating remote access in conjunction with the volume of traffic and the speed at which that traffic is flowing. As organizations migrate from 1Gb to 10Gb and beyond, network security tools struggle to keep up with these increasing connection speeds as the tools may not be designed to process the volume of packet traffic going through the protected link. Therefore, it is vital to implement security architectures and strategies that not only prevent security breaches, but can also dynamically react to potential threats and scale to meet future needs.

Next Generation Threat Protection Against Advance Malware, Zero Day Attacks, and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)

The threat landscape has changed. Cybercriminals and nation-states have quickly outpaced older, signature-based technologies. That's why, despite over $20B spent annually on IT security1, over 95% of companies2 harbor advanced malware within their network.
Enterprises must reinforce traditional defenses with next generation threat protection security that detects and blocks these sophisticated, zero day attacks. These new technologies are based on a signature less model that can recognize advanced malware entering through web and email, and thwart attempts by malware to call back to command and control centers. 
This extra defense is designed specifically to fight the unknown threats, such as zero-day and targeted APT attacks, thereby closing the IT security gap that exists in all enterprises.

Ric Rojas, a CISSP from FireEye with over 15 years in the security industry, and experience in malware forensics and intrusion prevention technologies will discuss how a real time signature less security model provides the extra line of defense required  to fight advanced malware, zero-day attacks and targeted APT attacks, thereby closing the IT security gap that exists in most enterprises today.
